former captain of australia Ian Chappell (Ian Chappell) has described India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin as better than Australian spinner Nathan Lyon. Chappell said, ‘I think Ashwin is better than Lyon. Look at Leon’s strike rate. You are talking about the 70s and I am talking about the year 2018.
Lyon has played 100 Test matches for Australia and has taken 399 wickets while Ashwin has 409 wickets in 78 Test matches. Lyon had taken nine wickets in the last four-match Test series against India. Ashwin has not achieved much success on foreign soil. He has taken 70 percent of the wickets on Indian soil. However, Ashwin has often been ruled out of overseas tours due to injuries.
Chappell said, ‘I think the Indian bowling attack is very strong. Apart from this, Ashwin also has a reputation. Ashwin was the highest wicket-taker in the recent home Test series against England. He took 33 wickets and was the player of the series.
